A good summary of some of the cool things about Lisp (and Racket, which I’ve never been in contact with).
It’s nice to be in a city were a lot of good artists stop by on their tours.
So far I’ve managed to see:
Tether is an interactive web application created by Jono Brandel in collaboration with Plaid. The track is accompanied by a series of graphic shapes that gradually evolve as the music progresses.
Plaid live tonight @ 1015 Folsom, SF. Excitement.
BTW I’m Currently residing in SF (short term work assignment), gonna be here for 3 months. Good stuff so far!
Been settling in, so that’s why I’ve been extra slacking with the blog.

This started as a Quil sketch.
Almost a year ago I posted about a colourlovers.com clojure client I hacked together. Today I decided to put it up on github finally. No changes what so ever since then, sadly. I hope it still works, heh.
I also included the messy example Quil sketch that generates the images seen in my blog post as a gist link in the README.md.
Bear in mind that I’m still very much learning Clojure. As such the code is what it is. Not very good.
